Hope you didn't pour the water effect already!::P:

 

Hah, nope, that'll be one of the last things done for this piece. 

 

Just got the priming done, it's dry enough to the touch and I'll go ahead and snap some quick picks and post them up in a moment.

Here we go, where I'm at right now -

 

Primed black and then some zenithal priming with grey. The goblet is now glued in place, the book on her lap is just held there with blue tack for the pics. That'll get glued on after I've painted her and the book separately.

 

A few pics are SFW as they are from behind and you can't see any naughty bits, took pics going all around her so you can all see all the angles.

 

Goblet look better? Should I do more zenithal priming with white on a few areas?

The angle of the goblet is much better, yes, but I could see in your Fb pictures that it still looks kind of like it's stuck to her thumb, since her fingers don't wrap around it. Though since it's already glued, it's probably too late to change anything.

 

The "floating" books look really cool, though, and I imagine will look even more so with a bit of color tying them to her hand, to indicate she's levitating them. ::):

 

What is the little cylindrical object behind her on the right? Is it a lamp, a vase, a tiny table?

 

Huzzah!

Hmm, I got it glued touching 2-3 fingers actually. Here's some super duper close-ups of her hand and goblet, looks really good in person.

The cylindrical object is a tiny lantern, I'll do a little bit of OSL from it leading outwards to give her some light, but nothing too drastic.

I'm sort of with OneBoot, actually, when I'm distracted by a good book the beverages get left on the table. That said, I've got a friend who likes to read in her soaker tub, and she's also the type to have a glass of wine handy. So I guess it depends on the personality you're portraying. ::):

 

I look forward to seeing some pics with paint applied, the all black primer is making it hard to see the details. She's a neat sculpt, though!

 

Question: Where did you get all your resin bits? They look great!

I figured we'd all have a differing opinions on the wine glass, some will like it, some won't care for it, but it's the offhand distracted nature I'm trying to portray that she is sipping her glass of wine, practicing her spells after a long day at the school, she's just comfy and took off most of her clothes and got distracted by the book in her lap before finishing her undressing. 

 

I'm currently painting the skin tones, not loving them yet as I try to get it just right, I also need to get the right base color for them before I do the tats and the stockings. Trying for the hispanic / native american type of skin tone, which isn't easy.

 

Resin bits - I'm pretty sure I picked them up from Fantization, they used to have a few packs of resin books/scrolls/goblets from enigma I believe.

Memorizing spells requires one to rest for 8 hours, but it doesn't necessarily mean sleep! :lol:

 

Wild mage approved.:winkthumbs:

After a bit over 2 hours of working and reworking and doing a bit of research on how other artists do skin tones, I settled on this -

I know it'll need some more contrast for highlights and whatnot, but this is pretty much what I was aiming for.

 

The skin tone recipe I grabbed from MaGie Miniatures, she's on here too as MGM Painting and does some really stellar female skin tones! Never thought to add ORANGE to the skin tones to warm them up and get the look I was going for.

Been working on the sheer stockings here, I think for the very first time I've done it that it came out looking pretty realistic. Thoughts?

I got a bit of black paint spatter on her shoulders from doing her hair's basecoat, I've already fixed that.

Super helpful tutorial, I skimmed it and saved it to my favorites.  It helps that I've already got a few Reaper skin triads.  :;):

Awesome, glad I could point you towards her blog site, it's very informational ::D:

I think the stockings turned out very well. It might be just me, but perhaps just a touch more skin tone should be showing through? Though I would be satisfied with how it is now.

Honestly, I keep going back and forth with it and am pretty happy with how it is right now, but if everyone thinks I need to add more skin tone, I'll re-work it a bit more tomorrow.

      Death Goddess Izanami is a sculpture based on Izanami-no-Mikoto, the creation goddess and deity of the underworld as chronicled in Shinto mythology.
      The bold designs of Axis Mundi Games and the neoclassical virtuosity of CA Sculpts have merged to bring forth a boutique product designed for the most demanding collectors.
      Death Goddess Izanami is a model that focuses on emotions as no model in the industry has done before. The sad majesty and woeful glory of a tormented goddess, the divine terror and eternal anguish of the departed, mere phantasms of their former conscience... all brought to life by a sculpture devised to match the style and the strength of neoclassical statues as never dared before.
      The aim of this kickstarter is to produce a limited collector's run called the Fukashi Sekai Run 不可視世界. All models forming part of theFukashi Sekai Run will he numbered and signed.

      Story
        Signum Workshop is a division of Signum Games company that specializes in the creation of high-quality fantasy miniatures in STL format for self-printing.
      Signum Games have been creating and casting fantasy resin miniatures for several years, and our miniatures have a lot of admirers from all over the world. 3D printers are nowadays becoming more and more popular, therefore we decided to join the market and make our miniatures more accessible to you.
      The imagination of our artists and modellers have no borders, and sometimes there are just too many new characters (or variations of one character) for us to be able to cast all at once in resin. But we don't want new characters to just gather dust on the hard drive and wait for their time to come. After all, now we finally can share all our new products with you!
        All of our miniatures have 32mm scale, which was not a suitable scale for some board games. All our models in files will be pre-assembled and have an option of individual parts.
        You can learn all about the quality of our models and to print files simply by clicking on the link and download a free model!
          The Signum Workshop project is only at the very beginning of its journey, so we will be happy to see your support, questions, advice, and comments on Patreon! 
      By supporting us on Patreon, every month you will get access to a new set of STL files of our newest miniatures.
        Dear friends,
      this set introduces 4 factions that will appear on our Patreon in the future.
      You will meet Plague fighters from the far East, proud warriors from the hot South, harsh warriors from the cold North, and adventurers from the mountains of the West.

      Thought some of you might find this of interest:
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cultofpaint/deorgard-by-cult-of-paint
       
      At Cult of Paint we've taught painting classes to hundreds of people all over the world. We make painting tutorials for YouTube and Patreon. We have signature series airbrushes with renowned manufacturer Harder & Steenbeck AND we produce a 54mm sci-fi miniatures range and bust collection that has won multiple international painting awards. Now it's time for something really cool............ OUR FIRST FANTASY MINIATURES RANGE!!!!! 
      Dræfend bust painted by David Colwell @davecolwell725 Ever since we created our sci-fi miniatures range we've had the bug for creating awesome models for people to enjoy painting. We LOVE fantasy settings and wanted to create our own world to explore the characters so often associated with fantasy and folklore, but with our own interpretations. And so Deorgard was born, with the elves being the first race we wanted to bring to life as gorgeous miniatures and busts......
      Heargeard bust painted by Rodrigo Ciprés @rodrigo.akore Releasing the range in one go ensures we create tonnes of excitement while also enabling painters to get their favourite models from day one with no long gaps between characters coming out. And it means we can crack on with working on more miniatures for you to add to your collections!
      As we begin to explore this wild land we wanted to introduce some elves from different regions of Deorgard.  PLAY  
      In Heargeard we meet a woodsman. A guardian of the forests and the dark places where some of the most ancient parts of the land still endure.
      Heargeard concept art by Max Fitzgerald @hieronymus_max Painted by David Colwell ( yes that base is insane ) As the trees give way to the grasslands a hunter needs not only patience but the frightening speed and savagery to survive. Dræfend is one such elf who excels here. She has learned to hunt as part of a pack, accompanied by one of the great wolves that make their homes in the foothills nearby.
      Dræfend & Wulf concept art by Max Fitzgerald @hieronymus_max Dræfend & Wulf painted by Ruben Martinez @rma_ruben_martinez The land rises sharply and great peaks soar towards the sky. Here we find another symbiosis of elf and beast. Whilst Sceotend may be blind she does not lack sight, her hawk's third eye providing unrivalled clarity and vision.
      concept art by Max Fitzgerald @hieronymus_max Sceotend painted by Richard Gray @daemonrich An equally harsh environment can be found in the vast desert that covers much of the centre of Deorgard. In this ever-changing and ruthless sea of sand, those such as Læl's word is law. She is judge and executioner, swift and merciless at dealing out punishment to any transgressors. 
      Læl concept art by Max Fitzgerald @hieronymus_max Læl painted by Andy Wardle @andywardle_artwork As primal and challenging as the landscape of Deorgard is there are still places where societies have settled and thrived. Guardians such as Indryhten stand sentinel over sacred places and those elected by their peers to rule these bastions of advancement.

      A new Kickstarter from Durgin Paint Forge coming late September / early October.
      Wasn't a backer of the previous ones, but I don't think there's been any issues.
       
      They've been working away at this one for a while, so most of the minis have already been previewed on their blog.
